The reverberations from Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson rippled across the country, bringing communities together in disbelief, grief, and outrage. These voices were soon amplified by a powerful poetic force: Claudia Rankine. As the country continues to reel from unending stories of police brutality and violence, hip-hop historian Jeff Chang, jazz musician David Boykin, sound artist Christine Hume, scholar Lauren Berlant, poet Roger Reeves, and others, join Rankine for a performance that reflects on race in America today This program is presented in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and the Poetry Foundation.
